Boston Celebration by Thomas Kinkade
About the Art
In Boston Celebration I return to a favorite subject at a different time of day and year. I first painted historic Boston Commons fourteen years ago on a damp fall afternoon. Now, I follow that collector favorite with Boston Celebration, meant to evoke the thrilling days following the Patriot’s 2005 Super Bowl triumph which came on the heels of the curse-breaking Red Sox World Series. Flags celebrating the champions festoon the square; blazing lights seem to herald the exciting moment; the glowing facade of Park Street Church looms like a victory torch.
